The police chief who oversaw a summer of Columbus protests and controversial shootings will no longer serve in that role.

Columbus officials today announced the members of the police chief's advisory panel and set new limits on the use of spray agents to disperse crowds.  

At a joint press conference this morning, Columbus Mayor Andy Ginther and Police Chief Tom Quinlan pledged to keep the public informed on clear, tangible actions the city will take regarding policing.
